    Forum U. S. Supreme Court Hearing on Union Dues Worries California Labor Leaders The United States Supreme Court will hear arguments Monday in Janus vs. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, a case likely to have major ramifications for California public employee unions. A decision in favor of the challenger would forbid such unions from charging "fair share" fees for workers who don't want to join but still might benefit from collective bargaining agreements. This would cost California labor organizations thousands of members, millions of dollars and possibly significant political clout. We discuss the implications of Janus vs. AFSCME for California.

But some leaks have put lives in danger. So, is there a limit to the publics right to know? When is leaking documents and revealing secrets worth the potential security risks? On this episode, well talk about when document leaks are legal, when they are morally justified, and when they arent - how, at times, theyve put lives in danger. We look at the balance of protecting national security versus freedom of the press and the responsibility of journalists once they obtain leaked documents.
